Sarranid Skirmishers are the weakest ranged troops available to the Sarranid Sultanate.


Armed with several Jarids, they can cause quite a bit of damage when hitting their target, but they will also run out of ammunition relatively quickly. In close combat, Skirmishers fight with Sarranid Swords or Spiked Clubs and sometimes even have Plain Cavalry Shields for protection. However, since these units are only lightly armored, they are best kept out of close combat.

As their ranged weapons are very limited in quantity but also incredibly powerful, an effective strategy is to order your Skirmishers to hold their fire and allow the enemy to get as close as possible to your main line of troops. The enemy would then lower their shields for melee, at which point your Skirmishers may be told to to fire at will, dealing massive damage to the opposing units.
